Training and Fun

It was a wonderful day today and I took my office out to the barn and did all my telcos there. I was riding Missi and Sandor today. Missi is incredibly easy to ride. She simply wants to do it ALL RIGHT and really pleases her rider.

Meanwhile she gained condition and she flexes nicely on circles etc. She compensates some confirmation disadvantages she has for dressage with a lot of will power.

Sandor was .... slow :) It is nicely to observe, once he trots he trots, but to get him there .... but he feels good, very comfortable and soft.

I also did some walking with the young ones and did some ground training with them. Tornado has some tensions right now in her back, but after a treatment yesterday she was running much more free today.

After all of this hard work, I had a surprise for the youngsters! A red ball with a tasty thing inside! You can really see that they are still young lol.


  1. Hi Caren,

    I just love the looks of Missi, sounds like she is great to ride trying to please you and do everyting you ask!

  3. Dear Jessica and Anniken,
